feeling empowered

i know that objects only have power if we let them but i made a circlet for myself that makes me feel empowered. it just seems to exude positive energy. the circlet is nothing special, just a few jump rings and some chains but i love it. and i guess the sense of accomplishment at having made it makes me feel pretty good. id like to thank a friend whose idea for a different project gave me the motivation to start jewelry making again. yesterday i handmade a two tier chain to hold my jesus…

my weight loss journey so far

in february 2011 i began a dietary program aimed at losing weight. when i started i weighed in at 340 and had a bmi of 50.4%. i have several medical conditions that made losing weight particularly difficult. i have tried in the past with little or no success. this time seeemed no different. the difference was the doctors i had supporting me. when it became apparent i could not lose the weight by diet and exercise alone, i undertook the decision of weight loss surgery. i did not want surgery,…

having a moral dilemna

my ex boyfriends girlfriend called me last night. my husband intercepted the call. apparently my ex was talking about me in his sleep again. she knows that hes still in love with me. and she knows i still care about him. she tried to talk my husband into letting my ex have some sort of relationship with me. i love my ex too but i love my husband and i want to be faithful. i dont like the idea of hurting either one. my ex is only my ex because my parents did not like how close that ex and i…

the portable altar is nearly complete. just found my athame last night on etsy. it is beautiful. its a dragon head with a removable tongue that doubles as an athame. the tongue is the handle and i got one that instead of the typical silver tone, it has been coated with a milefori pattern which is red. it is so adorable. im waiting on that, my mala, my rosary and my disciples cross to arrive. ive ordered some black salt from my local pagan store and am waiting for that shipment to come in.…

an odd dream

i had a dream last night, that i was sitting in a darkened room. a red light starting flashing on and off. on the other side of the room in a chair sat anton lavey. i recognized him from books and photos of him that ive seen. he sat there looking at me, silently mouthing something. i do not know what because i could not read his lips and half the time the light went dark. i dont know what significance it held, if any. it was just odd.

having a pretty good day....for once

i was feeling better today. my mother in law walked down to the corner store and there was a rummage sale. she bought a huge box of agate slices, and came home to get me so i could walk down and bring them home. theres probably 30 or more of them, many of them already polished and very beautiful. the others are just slices and will need to be sanded and polished. add that to the eggs that my hubby got on the 3rd and im feeling pretty damn good right now. i dont know why but whenever i touch… Continue

finding my way part 1

I am doing much soul searching to find "the truth" as defined by me. I dont see god or goddess being an external being.  ive come to believe they are within me. as if my body is their temple. one is light, one dark. but they complete that which ive been looking for. one connects me to the earth and one to my spirituality. a heaven if you will. so long i have lived in a hell of my own making. certain events are not my fault. some things are outside of my doing. and some things i just need to let… Continue

i have added to my altar

I got an oil burner i plan to use as a cauldron. i have also created my own set of prayer beads. It has 12 meditative beads. and an angel wing to top it off. The number twelve being important to me, as I was born december 12. I chose an angel wing to represent lucifer, the fallen archangel. The beads are black and to me represent lucifers companion lilith. it is not a large prayer beads set, its a little larger than a bracelet but i love it and thats all that matters. For now i am using a hail… Continue

making progress on my bos

well since ive been computer lacking as of late I have been working on my bos. I got the living wicca by cunningham and the witch school first degree by highcorrel which both have been sources of inspiration to me. I also incorporated some of the luciferian beliefs i have, and some christian ones as well. total contradiction i know but i have it worked out in my head and thats what matters. i am stuck on a few points but i will get the kinks worked out eventually. My rituals are not very long,… Continue

im feeing crafty.

in the past couple days i have been in a crafty mood. I have made my own elemental tiles using small wooden disks. today i found my wand. i am letting it dry out before i work on it, stripping the barks, and whittling the end down. next i need to find my darn woodburner and make my pentagrams for on the wall. i am thinking of making my own besom however i cant seem to find what i want for the besom. i dont have enough space to plant enough seeds to make a broom. i cant even find the stuff i… Continue

at last, the goddess and god have spoken to me.

I went to my local wiccan store, and i was drawn to a certain besom. it wasnt for sale, but i felt it. something was there. i knew where i could get one just like this. ETSY. Yay. I have fretted over my broom from the very beginning and now i know what i need. i also found a couple of books i plan to get later on. plus she had chime candles and the holders for them. i did however buy a couple of things. my husband, christian as he is, felt a strong pull toward a deck of tarot cards. they have… Continue
